companies, often buy a company, then load it up with a lot of debt. use that debt to pay themselves fees, maybe the company then does well, maybe it doesn't. but they enrich themselves regardless of whether the company they bought does well. is that fair? >> so like so many things in life, the truth lies somewhere in between. there are some very commendable aspects of private equity. i think private equity has made a serious major contribution to sharpening up management in this country by going in and saying we just care about the bottom line. we want this company to be run efficiently. we don't care about your corporate jets are going to go, all this kind of stuff. and i think they've had a real impact. that's the good side of private equity. on the other side, yes, there is a fair amount of financial engineering involved. sometimes private equity guys do what you alluded to which is they put so much debt on so they can take money back out and realize return on their investment, and then sometimes later -- not every time, of course, the company goes bankrupt. and they end up, the

millions of people out of poverty, helped make american businesses more productive, given us amazing goods and services at cheap prices. but these forces make it much easier to produce economic growth by using machines and technology or workers in lower wage countries. hiring high-wage workers, that is workers in western countries, becomes a last resort. while one can disagree with the data, there is furious disagreement over everything else. on one side are those, mostly liberals, who say the economy is suffering from insufficient demand. that is, people in businesses are not buying things. the only cure is for the government to step in, spend money, and create demand. on the other side, conservatives argue the problem is not weak demand but obstacles on the supply side. businesses and people will spend if they're in an environment that requires them to do so, reducing taxes, increasing regulation. in general i accept that a country needs a structure of taxes and incentives that reward growth. but beyond this rhetoric, what specifically would help right now? one of america's

/palestinian issue, and second, that he has used drone attacks in afghanistan and pakistan to go after terrorists. in other words, the reason obama has lost some of his global popularity is that he's perceived as too pro-israeli and too hawkish. think about that, mitt romney. romney has tried to use the standard issue cold war republican attack on democrats. the world is dangerous. our enemies are growing strong. obama is weak. the problem is, most americans recognize that none of this is really true. the world is actually quite peaceful right now. our adversaries like iran are weak and isolated. china is growing strong, but it has not used its power to contest america in major national security terms. the one enemy americans recognize and worry about remains al qaeda and its affiliated islamic terror groups. and obama has been relentless in attacking them. now, mitt romney is a smart man who has had considerable professional success in his life. but even republican insiders have admitted to me that he has been strangly amateurish on foreign policy. his campaign, they note, is not staf

strategic, yet it is rarely used. it's been allowed to crumble, no russian ship is based there. russia is the main arms exporter to syria, though its deliveries to syria are marginal, less than .1 what is sends to india every year. but its ties to the syrian army could be very useful. moscow could reach out and make syria's generals understand that they could preserve the military if they assisted in dislodging the regime and moving to a democratic framework. that's essentially what the egyptian military has done and while the revolution is not perfect, it's been preferable to a long and bloody civil war. russia might be unmovable. its officials are paranoid about western interventions that topple unpopular regimes. we've seen kosovo, afghanistan, iraq, and elizabeth as parts of a pattern, but they're also concerned about what would come after assad in a country, syria, where 40% are minorities, especially if some long, sectarian war would energize jihadi groups. russia has had and continues to have struggles with such groups in its southern regions and border areas. if the rus
